Lightning cracks the darkness
And for a moment I can see
It's just a spark to start with
But I follow where it leads

I won't spend my whole life hiding
Where no soul could ever thrive
I can't live with just surviving
My heart wants to feel alive

Life is change, and change looks frightening
Watch that wind I've been warned
But I live to feel this lightning
In this perfect storm

I see the twisting cloud that's turning
Where the earth and the heavens meet
I feel the voltage of that yearning
For the circuit to complete

So I will feel no resistance
To the current that will strike
I'll put my life across the distance
Where this longing turns to light

Life is change, and change looks frightening
Watch that wind I've been warned
But I live to feel this lightning
In this perfect storm

It washes me down to my soul
When a storm of these tears pours
It carries me into the flow
That's what it's here for

Life is change, and change looks frightening
Watch that wind I've been warned
But I live to feel this lightning
In this perfect storm
